Intro

Greetings members of The Pokecommunity! I am Fireworks. I started this hack some time during late Spring last year (although it wasn't posted until Jun 26th), and looking back at it then...it wasn't that good. It was extremely buggy, and the tile combinations were really bad. The maps were pretty poor too. So, around September-October, I quit it and began work on another hack. That one was a lot better,However my lack of motivation and all the limits of hacking that just didn't let the hack turn out how I wanted it to be, I decided to put it on hold, and return to it another time (not as a hack though). I then had no hack to work on. Should I just quit? Well, I had a look through my ROMs folder, and saw this. I liked the idea, and I had improved in all the fields it was previously lacking in. So...why not give it another go? Which is exactly what I'm doing now!


Story

May 21st 2000 (From the diary of a Rocket scientist):
The DNA replication experiment was a success. With the strand of the legendary Mew's hair, we managed to create life after countless tries. As the Pokemon's eyes opened, it spoke to us. We informed it that it was a Pokemon cloned from Mew to take the role of the most powerful Pokemon in existence. And that is where things began to go wrong. It attacked without mercy, destroying everything in site. Me and my colleagues managed to escape. Except for the man we forced to help us...

June 26th 2011 (From the diary of the protagonist--Grey):
Today is my fifteenth birthday. Mother has told me that I will be obtaining a Pokemon as my present. Kinda ruins the surprise doesn't it? But now I can set of on my journey throughout the Duoso Region. I can travel the Region like I've always wanted. And find the Pokemon that killed my Father when I was a child. Don't worry Father...I won't let you down.


Features


Travel the Duoso Region.
Battle and Catch 200 different Pokemon from Johto, Hoenn, Sinnoh and Unova.
Amazing new tiles and sprites.
Day and Night.
Seasons (Possibly).
A variety of fun mini-games and side-quests.
Pokemon will have mugshots when they are spoken to.
Find out and see the rest for yourself :).

Well, it's nice to see the thread's up. The screenshots look alright, nothing really stands out as amazing but nothing stands out as terrible either so I guess that's good. The storyline is okay, though you don't really reveal much so I can't really comment on that part. Some examples of the "fun miniquests" etc. would be nice to see, and the graphics looks alright. That Bulbasaur sprite looks a tad misproportianate (how that is spelled I dont even), though. I anticipate the release. :D

    It looks,awesome,Great Job!
    I could redo some tiles I did back when the old version was there.
    Also,something small:'If you're reading this,you're awake.'I't's pretty obvious,innit?

      the storyline is pretty good, i like it, maybe you can add more detail to it, and the screenshots are good as well, and i like that you inserted indoor tiles, because most hacks only insert the outdoor tiles. so keep up the good work.

        Well, the tiles look nice, especially the indoor tiles. But, the trainer sprite seems a little off... Maybe the hat's position?

        I highly doubt that would be a problem in the hack. You do realise that you can replace older tiles, right?

        The screen shots look amazing, though my only problem is you getting the Pokemon for your birthday as I've seen it many times and it gets pretty boring. Try making a little change to it if you can. Anyway, I'll be watching this hack for more updates/releases.
        Good luck!

        This hack looks to be very professional... but what I saw is that "Gray/Grey" or something is very popular in hack names... :D
        Decapitalization is great and sprites look nicely inserted, I'll be keeping my eye on this, GL =)

            I love the indoor tileset. It looks so quaint. The hero sprite looks weird as he's pointing but not looking in the direction in which he is pointing and his hat is enormous. But I like it nonetheless, especially the enormous hat =P. As mentioned many times through the thread the Bulbasaur sprite looks weird and the Starly backsprite looks small. Either way I have my eye on this one. Good luck.

                The other sprite's i meant the shuckle and starly since there is no other screenshots to view.

                The screenshots are good, I wish you the best of luck with this hack. I hope to see this hack being completely completed in the future, no matter how long it takes.

                  I was thinking the same thing. How about your mom has to leave for some reason (maybe found out later in the plot) and she gives you a Pokemon. Other than that, it looks really promising.

                    Looks awesome! The tileset on the outside and inside are wonderfull, the story is really interesting, having 4th gen inside it has been done many times but its still cool, the trainer you play as looks great, the tall grass actually looks like something a Pokémon would hide inside, in other words im looking forward to this hack by a 100%! I would hate to see it get cancelled!

                      Whoa maximum skill! This is impressive, a great comeback from the original hack. I sure hope there are great level scripts here to match this, the sprites and tiles too look great! Though the other OW doesn't really match the MC (main chac)'s not outline OW, so yup, that's it, the color text are a great eye candy too, I sure hope that this will get a HoY sometime : D

                      May be...may be. I'm changing the hero sprite anyway eventually.

                      Thanks.
                      Yeah, but I feel it adds a little bit of oomph to the story. The Hero's dad dies (Or does he?) on their fifth birthday, and then a decade later he sets out to find the evil big baddy Pokemon.

                      Decapitalization is great and sprites look nicely inserted, I'll be keeping my eye on this, GL =)
                      Thanks.

                      the screenshot looks nice too, nice choice of tiles and palletes..
                      But the bulbasaur looks weird, or is it just me..haha,
                      anyway good luck on this hack, i will be looking out for more..xD
                      Thanks.
                      No love for Bulbasaur?

But I like it nonetheless, especially the enormous hat =P. As mentioned many times through the thread the Bulbasaur sprite looks weird and the Starly backsprite looks small. Either way I have my eye on this one. Good luck.

                      Thanks.
                      The reason I'm using these Pokemon sprites is because I really like them, they're a nice change from the official sprites and the backsprites in B/W are much worse. Also it doesn't mean resizing so I can get through the hack a lot quicker

                      The other sprite's i meant the shuckle and starly since there is no other screenshots to view.
                      Yeah but the other sprites will eventually be changed

                      It will be, trust me, I've given up too many times before.

                      Nope

I would hate to see it get cancelled!
                      Thanks.

Though the other OW doesn't really match the MC (main chac)'s not outline OW, so yup, that's it, the color text are a great eye candy too, I sure hope that this will get a HoY sometime : D
                      Thanks, but it won't win HOTY, there are better hacks out there.

                      Anyway, sort of update. My exams are almost over, and the lab tiles are almost done, meaning I can resume progress! Yay!
                      Also, a sort of poll, but what would you like the Routes to be named as? Numbers, letters or stuff like "Banana Path"? Voting closes whenever the next update is

                        None of the above - pick a theme, like Nintendo have colours for towns and cities, try doing something like that for the route. Or even make them relevant to the towns/cities/areas they connect to (i.e the route next to Happy City is called Happy Route. and wow that sounds like a drug term). But that's a pretty minor part so I wouldn't dwell on it much.

                            You must be really good with pallets and that stuff since you managed to get kyledove tiles which uses more then 16 colors to your hack! And pretty amazing mapping there. I hope to see more!

                            I think I'm going to go with giving the routes proper names.

                            Thanks, they were a pain to insert. xD

                            Here's an update at last:

                            I was going to upload this sooner but I accidentally deleted the file so major thanks goes to DrFuji for re-scripting it for me, and a few edits here and there were made by me.
                            Tiles, overworlds, music and the ugly Mew script are going to be changed eventually.
